. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver

requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr

the governor of colorado signed an important gun safety bill into law, a series of bills into law. the new laws limit ammunition magazines and requires universal background checks to be paid for by gun customers themselves. they followed new york who just over a month ago became the state with the toughest gun laws in the country. outlawing magazines with more than seven rounds and gun safety is a national problem but the states are leading the way. none more than the state of new york. joining me now is the man who played the pivotal role in getting those laws passed, new york state attorney general eric schneiderman. mr. attorney general, welcome back to the show. you had a top law enforcement official in one of the biggest states in the country. tell us how you managed to get things done what congress so far has not been able to do. >> i think we ought to give credit to my colleagues in government and really on a bipartisan basis in new york, i think people seized the political moment. it was a galvanizing force and the bill that the governor and senate and assembly passed and i'm now defend
that put together the healthcare law and stood by politicians when they said stupid stuff like this. >> we have to pass the bill, so that you can find out what is in it. >> neil: well, never mind the lawyers actually knew what was in it. they wrote it. they just didn't feel telling us all the stuff that was in it. push coverage for preexisting conditions or keeping older kids on your policy. gloss over the bad stuff like thousands of part-time workers probably, well, losing the policies, collateral damage. i.e.d. now, top obama architect of that law admitting the obvious, the healthcare law is messy. you think? nothing he neglected to point out a few years ago when the warning could have come in handy. too late. we're knee-deep now and it's costing us through the nose. premiums going up much more than they said. doctors dropping out of their professions, much more than they feared. fine mess, i'm sure, in the fine print. where i'm equally sure there was a blanket policy for policy that would provide no blanket no, warmth, no protection, guarantee you could keep your doctor or plan. no plan
is in the business of making law. the supreme court interprets the law. they strike down the law, they strike down the law. the tests in heller with respect to unusual weapons, to other things, i think do not cover -- in other words, they cover an exemption for assault weapons. >> is that true, cynthia? the supreme court ruled in favor of assault weapons ban, as pointed out a few moments ago. >> exactly. >> i guess you can have the right to carry in d.c. which i don't agree with, but you can do it. >> there are absolutely no rights in the bill of rights that are absolute, as sam said earlier, and the assault weapons ban was in effect for a decade. no one said, at least the supreme court didn't say it was unconstitutional. heller has come along since then, but heller does not say all assault weapons must be legal. it says that authorities may, in fact, pass laws restricting gun ownership. >> in fact, that bastion of liberal thinking, justice scalia said that you can't have regulations on guns. i mean, i don't understand what the argument is about. conservative members of the court saying it's okay
the sequester is a law written and passed by congress that is specific about what can and can't be done. when it comes to im -- implementation. >> the white house is taking fresh criticism how sequestration impacting education funding assistance for active duty military members. marine corps today calling the cuts necessary to support semiprograms on the health, readiness of the corps. the president spent another day making rounds on capitol hill. meeting first with the senate republicans who had a split opinion on how it went. >> we'll see where we go from here. but it was a great meeting. >> not so according to john cornyn who said after today's meeting it is clear to me that balancing our budget and cutting bloated washington spending are not president obama's top priorities. then it was across the hill and across party lines to meet with house democrats. >> economy is trying to give us signs it wants to launch. the president wants to be there to make sure that the 535 elected members in congress. and the individual american people elected to be president of the united states are ready to
of laws for big corporations, wealthy people the politically connected, and another set of laws for everybody else. that was a really radical testimony that mary jo white engaged in. she admitted, and remember she's a former prosecutor. she admitted that she's taking in account the outside economic impact of prosecutorial decisions. the precept that justices are supposed to be blind to the questions of economics, the questions of impact on other things outside of the justice system. instead she's saying essentially that prosecutors should be thinking--shareholders whether to prosecute lawbreakers. shareholders should determine in part whether a law-braking company should be prosecuting. that's a radical notion. >> michael: that's crazy. people within the corporation deciding whether the corporation should be prosecuted. where in the world does that sit in legal terms? she has a diverse resumÉ. she has worked as a federal prosecutor. she has worked on the defense of morgan chase, bank of america. and don't we want people who knows the inners of how banks work but laws when you t
about what the second amendment is and what it is is not. so did ted cruz not go to law school? has he ever been to law school? >> i believe he went to harvard law school. do they teach law there? >> did they teach ted cruz to read what the supreme court said, especially in the landmark, the landmark decision regarding second amendment rights over 200 years was written in 2008. i'm just wondering why would he use his seat on the judiciary committee if he went to harvard to -- to -- to put forward a willfully ignorant statement about this bill violating the second amendment, because it does not. and ted cruz knows it does not. so who is he playing for? is he playing for -- for -- for people who can't read, for illiterates? i don't understand. you know, a lot of people out there that support ted cruz's position that will say, this is not a violation of the second amendment, however, i have real concerns because you take this first step, the next thing you know they are trying to overturn heller and try to get my shotguns and try to get my hundreding rifles. i don't mean to go on and on h
the laws in this country to erode, a menace to have taken place in the (inaudible) congress have taken authority away from organizations like the cdc to do studies, taken away the authority of the atf to do its job to go after the bad gun dealers, only 1 percent of them, but they are responsible for 57 percent of the crime guns in this country, so much that has to be done. now last saturday we had a gun buy back in san mateo county. with we today is captain sam gallagher. if you want to talk to him about the success of that buy back, i'm sure he will be happy to accommodate. it opened at 10 am, there were people lining up at 8 am. they waited in line from 10 am to 3pm to turn in their guns. there were more than 680 guns turned over, 338 handguns, 371 long guns, 24 assault weapons. one of the assault weapons that was turned over was called a street sweeper. i saw a street sweeper in action today. it is devastating what that instrumentality can do. it mows down people. that was collected in a county that has the second lowest crime rate in the state. so i, for one, think there is
much negative behavior. we talk about it. we complain about it. but yet we need to support our law enforcement. >> reporter: this is not the only area looking for help. the angels are coming to his district this weekend to help clean up. in oakland, john sasaki, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> more solo drivers are buying their way into express lanes. that's helping to raise cash. the highway 237 to interstate 880 express lane generated $900,000 in the first year. or about $300,000 more than projected. transportation planners are considering several new express lanes by 2015. >>> it's taken five years but today san francisco-based twitter received its patent. the tech website says the u.s. patent and trademark office granted twitter's founders a patent. twitter has publicly promised to only use the patents defensively. the company will also require permission from its employees if it wants to take the offensive and sue another company over intellectual property. >>> comcast customers may have noticed their internet service has gotten a little quicker. they've increased the speeds of servi

governor of colorado signed into to law some of the toughest safety measures of the country. >> the new law extipds background checks. it closes a loophole that had exempted firearm sales at gun shows from back ground checks. the laws also limit the size of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds and eight shotgun shells. >> but even that progress was tainted by tragedy. he signed the legislation just hours after members of his own cabinet was shutdown. he was gunned down in his own home last night. clemens was fate lay shot after answering his door. police are still looking for his killer. earlier hicken looper mourned the loss. >> i think the cabinet is good with this, we go forward with our work. it's the kind of thing that tom would have understood, i think. and, and would have supported. >> yet republicans in that state say they will fight the new gun laws. >> it proves that we have the gun control governor here in colorado. and the myth is busted that no one can any longer think of he him as a moderate democrat. >> today marks the eightth month anniversary of the shooting in aurora, colorad
on gun control laws; life and death in the emergency room in newark, new jersey and high speed internet changing what we watch and how we watch it. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the federal reserve stood by its aggressive plan to stimulate the u.s. economy, keeping short-term interest rates at record lows. and it said there are signs the economy is getting stronger. one of those signs-- unemployment-- fell to a four- year low of 7.7% in february. still, the fed predicted it won't reach 6.5% until 2015. the fed and its chairman, ben bernanke, also had words of caution for congress. >> i do believe that long-term fiscal stability is extremely important and i urge congress and the administration, as i always do when i go to testify, to do whatever is necessary to put us on a sustainable fiscal path going forward. but in doing so, i think it's a good idea to pay attention to the impacts in the near term on what is still not a completely satisfactory recovery. >> sreenivasan: congress moved a step closer to advancing a spending bill that would
, though. one is necessary. >> eric: they already broke the law. they have broken the law coming here. let them continue to break the law and give them the same voting right as someone has broken the law? >> greg: i said they have to get in line behind everybody else. >> eric: you say illegal immigrants who will eventually get voting rights. >> greg: if they're good people who work hard, heck yes. the victory here is for the media academic complex. maybe argument for the border, sign of victory. if you want something that mexico has, you are somehow seen as racist. meanwhile, mexico, what is your role in all of this? nobody is trying to get in to your country. yet, you criticize our immigration policy. >> andrea: what do you think of this flan of course, security first. and chuck schumer and other democrats said we agree with that. there is an issue how long they want to make them wait. getting, to go to the back of the line is a fair policy. it's time that republicans embrace it. i long said that. >> bob: first, let me say this about rand paul. he has risen in my estimation, i was critica
with a cyber attack. everyone. i have seen the list. the university's, foundations, major law firms. they hit my area. they took everything off of my computer a few years ago. people have been reluctant to speak out about it. what is so shocking and makes me angry, the american taxpayer funded this guy, funded this guy, this chinese buy, he had over $200,000 grant. we were paying for him to spy against this. there are no americans working in china on any of the people's liberation army, the space program. the people's liberation army basically runs their space program. there were the ones that opened up to kill all those human rights advocates. there the ones that really have led that genocidal government. this demonstration has to be very aggressive. the attorney general i think it's been weak, but the fbi has been very good. d.h. as has been very good. and so i want to congratulate. also i want to say most of this information was brought to a spy career people in nasa. they brought it forth. this is not only at the langley center. also taking place perhaps out of the ames center in californ
new laws with 51 votes getting the necessary number might have been possible. here's another number over 50 that senator might have considered when making his legislative plans. according to the latest "abc news" "washington post" poll, 57% of adults said they would support a ban on the sale of assault weapons. only 41% said they wouldn't. that's only if you believe in democracy. as for senator feinstein she had said to have been angry when she told reporters, how many assault weapons do you need circulating. to have these mass killings is such a blight on everything that america stands for. meanwhile new gun control legislation became latte in colorado where democratic governor john hickenlooper signed three bills that will restrict sales of new ammo clips to 15 rounds. require universal background checks, and charge gun owners for the background check costs. governor hickenlooper signed those bills shortly after the death, the victim of another gun violence, a man that the governor new john clemens who heads the department of corrections. he had a wife and two daughters. here's pa

? a book called "above the law: police and the excessive use of force" by jerome skolnick and james fyfe says police often view their work as an us versus them war rather than about community engagement. they also say, excessive police violence persists because of a lack of official account blt. policing is extraordinarily difficult and dangerous and most of them worry about not going home every day. i get that. the fear-based response means treating citizens like enemy combatants which can lead to many dead and police settlements in double digits annually in many cities. this in a world where david kennedy had massive success by instituting community policing. this in a world where we could go case after case nationwide where police killed wrongly, unarmed amadou diallo shot 42 times in new york. orlando barlow shot and killed while surrendering on his knees in las vegas. oscar grant shot and killed in the back in oakland. aaron campbell shot and killed in his mother's house in portland. a jury would say it resulted from flawed police practices. steven washington, an autistic man, shot

members who are calling to restrict money from the president's health care law as part of legislation to fund the government. >> i believe that trying to put obama care on this vehicle, risks shutting down the government. that's not what our goal is. our goal here is to reduce spending. >> current funding to keep the government operating runs out on march 27th. >>> new bills tightening controls on the sale of guns are headed to the full senate. but there's real doubts over whether democrats can muster support to turn the suggestion into law. the bills limiting the high-capacity magazines and background checks have narrowly passed a key committee. and debate boild over when ted cruz challenged die in an feinstein on whether her plan is constitutional. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. and the question i would pose to the senior senator from california would she deem it consistent with the bill
. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst juan williams. juan, we can talk about the strategy here and move onto the legislation itself. why, why did harry reid make the decision? >> didn't have the votes, jenna lee. it is very clear he does not feel if this can get through and it further could endanger efforts that he is making on the gun control front and central among them would be making sure that you punish people who are straw purchasers of illegal, of weapons in order to hand them over to others who don't have the right to buy guns, couldn't get through a background check. similarly he wants to look at school safety measures. he wants to close background, make sure background checks are complete, that they cover everybody. that there's no gun show loophole any longer. these are steps that he thinks he can get a consensus on, that he can hold together the
